We Can Do Better

I am very tired of hearing people (including one particular Democratic presidential candidate who I'll call Boe Jiden) disgorge sickening aphorisms about how we need to return to how things were pre-Trump.

Actually, no. We need to do way better than that. The United States was not perfect by any stretch of the imagination before Donald Trump was elected.

Many of its flaws were precisely why Donald Trump was elected.

Good grief. Dream bigger.

And, you know, as a general rule: Progressives look forward.
